fibre channel tape library to windows 2008 server, no lun assigned
Posted on 2014-01-29
I have a win 2008 r2 server with an HP ae311a (qlogic 2460 I believe) connected to a hp 200e switch, and an msl6000 with a e1200-320 and an e1200-160 connected to the switch.
Qconvergeconsole (qlogic gui config software) see's both e1200's. But I'm not able to get either of the e1200's to create a lun on the server so that windows will see the scsi controllers and ultimately the tape drives and library.
I've tried port mode auto sense and N_port, qconverge see's the e1200 in either case but no lun listed. I haven't messed with hard al_pa. I've factory reset both e1200. after any changes on the e1200's they've been rebooted. I've rebooted the server also, even though after changing the e1200 qconverge tells me somethings changed would you like to refresh. but still no lun's.
Hba and both e1200 are at the latest version. Haven't updated firmware in switch because it sounded like I had to do something with dos.
Any suggestions to get the lun's would be greatly appreciated.
